I went here with my sister and 2 nieces whom I hadn't seen in a few years as I live in Illinois. I didn't expect much but I truly enjoyed the spaghetti and meat sauce and everyone else looked to have liked theirs as well....More

I had the Trout. It was fresh tasting and delicious. The service was excellent too. The restaurant is upscale and trendy, but not in an uncomfortable way. We enjoyed our evening.
